Detailed Review Features and Benefits
The Makita 9564CV Angle grinder is a 4 ½ inch high power angle grinder with a powerful 12-amp motor, SAAS technology, Variable speed control dial, constant speed control, soft start, and a Super joint system.
The design of this Makita 9564CV grinder is made very comfortable and ergonomic. It has lightweight which makes it easy to use for long stretch hours and it comes with a side handle that can be easily installed on either side of the tool. With the tool-less wheel adjustment, clamping on this grinder is quite easy.
This angle grinder has a 12-amp motor that requires a voltage of 120 VAC. You can use the tool 10 feet away from where it is plugged into an AC supply because that is the length of the cord.
Makita 9564CV Angle grinder is equipped with the super joint system (SJS) which helps a lot to protect the grinder. When a grinder binds, it can cause the gear to burn up which means repair or total change of the machine which means money leaving our pocket.
With the SJS system in the Makita grinder, you can be assured that such would not happen. Here is how it works. When the grinder binds, there is a coil spring inside the machine that disengages the gear from the motor and that is what saves the tool. Your gear and motor are preserved, it is very simple but saves a lot.
The tool uses the labyrinth construction, zigzag varnish, and thicker coil wire which is a number one indication of durability or long-life span. It can withstand dust and contamination in the environment due to the complex set of channel designs.
The start-up of the machine is smooth because it starts slowly which reduces start-up reactions. When it is working fully on a difficult piece, there is a tendency for the speed to drop but it has an automatic constant speed control that ensures that it continues the work with a uniform speed.
The 12-amp motor of this advanced technology angle grinder comes with a 5-staged variable speed dial 2,800-10,500 RPM which allows the user to use the right rotational speed for the job.
You do not want to spoil the piece you are working on and Makita wants to keep it that way so it allows you to choose how fast you want the grinder to be. This feature is especially important when grinding and polishing stone works.
This tool is more than a machine, it is a lover whose work is to make grinding and polishing easier, quicker, and sexy.
